It doesn't preclude statutory rape laws that are in effect.

Sorry to be "unfeeling". In this day and age to be stupid enough to "share" activity like this deserves something more some private slap on the wrist. Those images are now public and available for who knows what unsavory purposes. I don't really care who is shown to have exploited whom, who claims consent and who doesn't. The phone was put into use. Don't tell me they didn't know.

Perhaps it should, that was my point. Sorry, wasn't clear.

Wasn't there a similar incidence awhile back the only difference it was a guy? Seems a bit crazy to get someone in trouble with this, but if it happens to guys it should equally apply to girls.

Probably all of us, who were 16 at one time, would be in trouble for some of the bad decisions we made. The brain isn't fully developed at that age, so it is hard to understand how they are bringing charges against this girl.


Sometimes we go way overboard in this country with our laws and beliefs.

She wasn't too young to consent; age of consent in Maryland is 16 from what I gather.

It isn't "perhaps it should", that is the case. In cases of minor engaged in prostitution with a customer, the minor is charged with prostitution but the customer is charged not only with prostitution/solicitation but also statutory rape.

Good. I hope this kind of ruling becomes widespread.

It is widely accepted that people (not just kids) often don't think about ramifications. This girl was putting herself into danger of being harassed and having a "bad reputation" for her remaining years at whatever high school she was attending. Sometimes adults must step in and save them from themselves.

I am sorry that this girl was made to be the example, though -- but maybe it will serve as a warning to others just like someone who was killed because s/he texting while driving -- or because the driver who killed her or him was.

Me too. GOOD. Possession of that video that this girl took, if it were sent to an adult without his consent could ruin his life. It's time kids (especially girls) learn of the life-ruining power that video of their sex acts, or even their nude bodies has.


Several years ago, at the high school my kids attended, a popular and pretty girl took a naughty bits picture of herself and texted it to her then boyfriend. A friend was messing around on the boyfriend's phone, saw the saved photo, and blasted the pic out to 20 or so friends. From there, it went out and out and out. The school found out about it, and blew a gasket.

No punishment came to the girl, who had created the photo, or the boyfriend, who received it and saved it. The boy who distributed it was punished, and the other kids who received it (without asking for it!) but did NOT delete it were punished. Only the kids who received it (without asking for it) and deleted it narrowly escaped punishment, because the parents were in a frenzy of anger.

I know that girl did that to be fun and cute, and didn't know the frenzy of punishment that would ripple out to those who didn't even KNOW her, and didn't want a picture of her goodies, and deleted it when it was received, but still.

It's time for some push back. Girls, you have the potential to pull the pin out of a grenade and throw it in the school cafeteria. Don't.

OR, we could go at this another way. Can we all just stop rending our hair and clothing over the misbehaviors of teenagers and move on? Girl, sorry you're embarrassed, maybe you shoudna taken pics of your privates or a sex act?

The irony is that child porn laws criminalize women who are of legal age of consent in 40 states and virtually every other country on the planet.

How? How do child porn laws criminalize women?
